# How to create polynomial regression model in R?

A Polynomial regression model is the type of model in which the dependent variable does not have linear relationship with the independent variables rather they have nth degree relationship. For example, a dependent variable x can depend on an independent variable y-square. There are two ways to create a polynomial regression in R, first one is using polym function and second one is using I() function.

## Example1

set.seed(322)
x1<−rnorm(20,1,0.5)
x2<−rnorm(20,5,0.98)
y1<−rnorm(20,8,2.15)

## Method1

Model1<−lm(y1~polym(x1,x2,degree=2,raw=TRUE))
summary(Model1)

## Output

Call:
lm(formula = y1 ~ polym(x1, x2, degree = 2, raw = TRUE))
Residuals:
Min 1Q Median 3Q Max

Coefficients:
